Sean McDermott Street Swimming Pool

Important Notice Please Read - CLICK HERE

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the more than 20,000+ facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times; we cannot tell you about the availability and cost of swimming lessons; we cannot help you find your children’s lost goggles or bathing suits.

We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their access policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include email addresses and hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.

The data in each listing is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editors become aware of a change but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about three years to complete; in many places, prices will change two or three times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.

For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. Please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with your area and visiting for the first time.

To our English users: For reasons described in the FAQ, county names shown the listings in England are the cities' and towns' historic counties, not necessarily the counties they are assigned to now.

Facility Notes

NOTE: When we checked this listing in November, 2017, public access to this pool was limited to 3 hours and 45 minutes per week, between 10 AM and 1.:45 PM on Saturdays. We found a summer schedule that showed more public access, but included the warning: "Public swimming times are subject to change each week due to group bookings. Please contact the pool/office in on the above numbers for an up to date timetable in advance." Forewarned is forearmed...
Clothes are placed in baskets and handed into the lifeguards who keep them in their 'room' while you swim.

Facility Reviews

Reasonably clean but looks like a prison outside. Still, lanes are provided on some sessions, and if it's not too busy the 45 minutes will be 'blind-eyed'.
Although it's just ½ mile from O'Connell St., it’s a rough area and needs its security. Beware if you visit after dark.
I’ve been going here for a couple of years and never witnessed any antisocial behaviour. Sean Mc Dermott St. is tagged by small-minded people with no knowledge of the area. O’Connell St. is far more dangerous at night.
